Turnov is the Express Trans-Siberian Railway From Russia.

Personality

He is a hard-working, hard-drinking, hard-fighting mean machine. His hard, uncompromising attitude echoes Wrench's character, making them a well-matched team in the original London production.

Role

In the original production, Turnov raced with Wrench in Heat 3, losing to Poppa and Dustin. When Starlight Express opened on Broadway in 1987, Political subtext was incorporated into the show. The Cold War was still in the air, with "The Russians" as The Enemy. The RED Caboose is the antagonist of the show, the untrustworthy villain, who races with the Russian. In the US/UK tour 3D race footage, he races with Ashley.

Turnov's twin in the Japan/Australia tour was initially simply "Turnov 2", but later was named "Vladimir".
